Now that I’ve gotten my ring back onto my “married” finger.
Yes since I’ve had Vera, my fingers (and the rest of my body) have never been quite the same again.
I haven’t been able to fit into my wedding band for close to 5 years now.
Recently, I pulled it out from my ring box and lamented to the hubby. He looked at my ring, a sweet size 11, and said “hey there are three diamonds on your ring…each one represents our three kids!”
That sparked off an immediate desire in me to get my ring resized, asap.
I had not put three and three together, you see, until he said it. (Men have a surprising ability to add fresh perspective into our world, no?)
So now, the ring is resized, and I can finally fit into it again.
We actually designed our own wedding ring as hubby knew a craftsman who was able to make the bands for us at a sweet deal.
Hubby simply provided him a sketch of what we had in mind. If you take a close look, our ring has these key elements:
- The white and yellow gold – representing the both of us as unique individuals coming together as one
- A wavy line between the white and yellow gold – symbolising the ups and downs of marriage life
- Three small diamonds (only on my ring, not his) represent us and God, with God at the head of our marriage. (Of course, this has taken on a new dimension, with our three children.)
Now I just need to watch my weight so I don’t end up not fitting my ring again!
Wearing our wedding ring on my finger again reminds me of what we’ve been through the past five years. Marriage can be such a fragile thing these days…We all need to make the effort to work hard at it, and be intentional about choosing to love with our actions, words, and thoughts.
Sometimes we are eager to make our partner “fit” into our expectations and preferences…but do we make it a point to fit into their world too?
What are some of the little things you have done (or can do) to be a good fit with your spouse?
